OK, so we all by now have heard that O.J. Simpson was accused of storming a hotel room in Las Vegas at gunpoint – in order to rob it/reclaim his property.
He disputes the claim that guns were involved, and the victim wants the charges dropped. None of that really matters for my point.
Here’s what shocked me and just really ticked me off:
“I’m O.J. Simpson. How am I going to think that I’m going to rob somebody and get away with it?”
Do you sense the jab at justice there? He’s practically bragging about getting away with murder with this cocky somewhat sarcastic/ironic comment.
Even if the victim wants the charges dropped, the police say there were other victims – so they’d better prosecute – even if he gets any punishment, at least he was punished some for the wrong things he’s done in his life.
